Walking trails

Greystones' Wildlife Walk and Time-Travel Trail. Greystones nature reserve is gently undulating and there are no steep sections. The walking trails are on level paths or on grassy tracks and there are no stiles to cross..

Please note that there are no seats along the trails, although visitors are welcome to relax by the River Eye.

As Autumn unfolds and the weather gets wetter, the meadows walk is closed for the winter. This allows wildlife such as snipe to search for food undisturbed by people or dogs and the meadows to hold water without getting damaged by feet or people getting stuck in boggy ground.

The Oxfordshire Way long-distance path runs through the site.
